Full Service Laboratory

A wide range of Organic and Inorganic regulatory analyses are available at Apex Laboratories, performed according to EPA, State, ASTM and Standard methods for a variety of matrices. Apex is also able to accommodate method development, bench studies and validation for special projects.


Apex Laboratories, Inc. is a privately owned, independent, full-service environmental laboratory offering unprecedented personalized service and analytical expertise. Its establishment in 2006 brought together personnel with decades of experience and a common goal to rise above the mass-production approach of large laboratory chains. Our team of over 60 professionals share the philosophy that client relationships are important to understanding project needs, and samples are not just lab I.D. numbers to our analysts but key pieces needed to solve environmental puzzles.


The laboratory is designed to process samples efficiently, consistently, and effectively. Apex operates within a 36,000 sq. ft. facility with separate areas specifically designed for each analytical department and equipped with cutting-edge instrumentation and data acquisition software. Flexible spaces allow the ability to add capacity to respond to environmental spills and emergencies. Whether you need fast turn-around time for real time decisions or specialized method development and validation for unusual sample matrices, Apex Laboratories can provide.
